It wae ten minutes after -midnight
when Mr. Bryan concluded and Rep

He plunged without preface Into a
scathing arraignment of Mr. Bryan.
Turning from time to time he faced

voice trembling, Mr. Williams de
clared that Mr. Bryan had pre

pleading for harmony when in all this
great convention nis naa oeen tne
only voice of discord. The amend
ment to the Parker telegram he
characterized as "a lot of foolish ques

bltins- humor and arreat earaNtneea.
In explaining that the telegram from
Judge Parker was simply an expres
sion of the judge's own Individual
ODlnlon. Mr. Williams suddenly
wheeled and faced those on the plat
form and asked: "Snppote we bad
nominated Bryan on that platform."
"God forbid," ejaculated Richmond
P. Hobson, In a loud voice from jast
behind the speaker.
In explaining his attitude on the
absence of a financial plank In the
platform, he remarked of the money
question: "If It is a trance, It will
awake; but If it la dead, I don't want
the corpse in my parlor."

County Treasurer B. P. Williamson

the dispensary profits for the sec

to this sum he has on hand 14,000

first quarter's operations. In addi

sums make up over 913,000, which
is now In the hands of the treasurer

foregoing it will be seen that the
dispensary during the first six
months of its existence has been
making money at the rate of over
140,000 net per annum, as it must
be remembered that, ont of the first
quarter's earnings were paid the ex
